. leave you with an important fact that was stunning to me. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain. when i saw that and looked at the numbers last night, i could not believe it. that tells you, i think, that he had not only problems expanding his reach to key demographics but even within his own party. that is not a candidate that can win. >> can i jump in with chris real quick. not only did mitt romney have less votes than john mccain, barack obama had way less votes than barack obama had, and that's because these campaign commercials turned off the american people. they went on and on and on. they defined both candidates badly, and they did not have a positive discussion about the future. and both the american people, i think, were sick and tired of all politicians by the end of this campaign. >> we'll see if anybody thinks they should do things differently now. gentlemen, it's great to see you again. also making news this morning, the director of new york's office of emergency management has been fired for misusing emergency workers during hurricane sandy. governor andrew cuomo
. libya. senator john mccain went off on it this morning. let me play that. >> you think the president misled us? >> i know he did. he didn't tell the truth to the american people at one time or another. >> how widely held a view do you think that is? i was a little bit surprised, frankly, to hear him put it so clearly, major. >> well, republicans do believe that there was an information gap and a flow gap that is irreconcilable with the known facts and what the administration was representing in the five or six days after the 9/11 attack on that sons lat facility in benghazi. now, one thing republicans will probably have to caution against is overdramatizing their sense of outrage and building a fact pattern that represents a genuine inquiry and not partisan accusations. the one thing that the white house has here is that it has the fact pattern and accountability and generally investigations succeed when you build a fact pattern gradually bit by bit and don't accuse things before you have an underlying fact basis for that. my guess is republicans as they sit and talk about this are g
. >> fewer votes than john mccain, however, which i don't think anyone would have necessarily pretty quicked. are we going to learn something about the republican party when we see how the discussions for the fiscal cliff go? >> you're going to see if the republican party is going to give in terms of tax rates and what are they willing to compromise on in order to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff. if they hold steadfast to their position and basically say, it's our way or the highway, they are going to basically feed into this alienation of these key demographic groups. this is what i think every party goes through in terms of when you lose, especially in a race that you thought you had a chance to win. again, i think the problem here for the republicans is the spokespersons of the party, whether mitch mcconnell or john boehner and whoever it might be at the national level, i'm not sure who else that could be at this point, they have to understand that everybody listens now. we live in a different media age. and when you talk in very extreme voices or out-of-touch voices, you aliena
. >> senator john mccain is really pushing. and you heard the sound from yesterday. i want to play what he said on the "today show." listen to this. >> by the way, i'm not taking anybody on. the american people lost four brave americans. we owe it to their families. for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that's the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> we've heard this from him. from lindsay graham and kelly iot. are those just the three that feel this way? are they outlieers. >> i think there's a big demand to find out what happened in benghazi and to do so through a select committee. there's going to be no sharing of intelligence between the various committees who look into benghazi. so the idea is a select committee can take this on, share information and really get to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the
